Quote of the day

"We had an offer and I said no – the boy was the future of the club. Some people agreed and some did not. At the time Carroll would have been sold, but instead I got him to sign a new contract."

Hang on a minute - you're the person solely responsible for keeping Rocky at the club? Come back Dennis, all is forgiven!

Wise was speaking on Saturday's Football Focus. The programme also featured an interview with Alan Pardew who - in between describing himself as "fortunate" but not "lucky" to be in the job and subtly reminding Jabba how much he's spent in compensation on sacking managers prematurely - revealed that assurances Rocky would be retained were key to him signing a contract. So little wonder that recent stories in the Express and elsewhere declaring that 'Appy 'Arry has his beady eyes trained on our number nine have prompted him into sending out a robust hands off message. Will Jabba be true to his word? Who knows?
